Some Siskiyou County waterways are still off limits after a sewage spill in Mount Shasta City. Last Wednesday a main sewer line south west of Interstate 5 broke, sending untreated wastewater into Cold Creek, which flows into Lake Siskiyou. It’s estimated that 2,360,000 gallons was lost, and half of that was raw sewage. The City of Mount Shasta is installing a bypass pump system to stem the wastewater outflow. It could take a couple of weeks to repair the damage. in the meantime, it’s urgent that nobody come into contact with the water of Cold Creek or Lake Siskiyou. Those who have should seek medical attention.
